If you decide to move forward with Weddings by the Vine, we will then schedule a planning session and create an initial plan of action for the cluster(s) chosen. Following that meeting, we will develop a wedding coordination plan which will provide a timeline for all detailed action items associated with the cluster(s) or service(s) booked.
Because there are so many vineyards in the state, we have not established relationships with every one of them. However, we have established relationships with the vineyards we feel have the best wine and venue options available. Please note that if there is a vineyard you’re interested in, we can certainly entertain the option.
While the contracts are between you and the vendors, we assist with review and negotiation. This is to ensure that there is total clarity between the cost of our services and the costs associated with the vendor, which are completely separate.
Yes, definitely! We can assist at any stage during the planning process even if you’ve already hired some vendors. We can also assist with month-of coordination to ensure that your creative vision is fully executed.
Absolutely not. While vineyard weddings are our specialty, we have also assisted at other wedding venues.
Of course. Most vineyards only serve their wines at the reception. However, many of them will also serve beer, and a few vineyards allow a couple to have a “signature drink” during the cocktail hour. This varies per venue, and sometimes a special permit is required.
Some of the vineyards offer this exclusively for weddings held at their vineyards.
Absolutely not! While many couples choose to have the ceremony and reception outdoors because of the natural beauty, there are many vineyards that also offer romantic indoor ceremony and reception options.
The sooner, the better! There will be more options available the earlier you start. Also note that Kimberly can only work on so many weddings per year, so reserving your spot far in advance is preferred.
With over 180 vineyards in NC, there are rustic wedding venues available at every price point.
There are numerous benefits to having a vineyard wedding. A few are a decrease in decorating costs, a naturally tranquil setting for beautiful photos, and being able to enjoy wine created with the grapes grown right on the property. How green is that!
